Editors’ Notes

With her third album, One of the Boys, the “Redneck Woman,” biggest new star of country music 2004, returns with her most intimate and revealing album to date. Co-writing nine of the album’s eleven tracks, Wilson minces few words and handles a few paradoxes in the process. Case in point, the title track is not a celebration of fraternal order, but a plea to be seen as more than one of the boys, as a poor woman suddenly steeped in success with a tender side aching behind the tough party-girl exterior. Not that she can’t crank it up for a good time. “There’s A Place in the Whiskey” works up a barroom sweat with a Skynyrd-meets-ZZ Top electric jam exorcism. But Wilson comes into her own on the ballads and mid-tempos, which are purebred country, defiantly traditional in an age when Nashville has been leaning hard on pop. Wilson uses fiddles, steel guitars and mandolins to support her poignant confessions and tracks such as “The Girl I Am,” “Heaven Help Me” and “Pain Killer” are refreshing in their no-nonsense, traditional country approach.

not the best

i dont like how every single song is so upbeat and rocky.. maybe she should slow some of her songs down..

Another Hit CD From Gretchen!

I really love Gretchen! This CD is a hit CD just like 'Here For The Party' and 'All Jacked Up' I really love all these songs on this CD but my favorite is "You Don't Have to Go Home" this whole record shows the true redneck woman she still is that's why I like the rockin' songs more but this CD is also good because it has a little mix of fun and feeling in it like "Heaven Help Me" & "Come to Bed" Gretchen is going to do great this go around just like the last 2 times!! I give it 1 billion stars!!

Way 2 Go Gretchen!!

All together it's a great album! All the songs are great and I can relate to all of them! Gretchen played a preview of the album back in February at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo and I couldn't wait for the release! My favorite song is "You Don't Have To Go Home." It's got that country/rock feel to it! I really recommend buying the whole album!
